Griffith’s wife, Marg Tucker, is calling on the community to volunteer their time to place small white crosses on the 1,025 Griffith Cemetery graves of ancient men and women ahead of Anzac Day. Last year was the only year the tradition was missed since 2010. This coming Sunday, April 3, Marg will place these crosses on the graves, inviting members of the community to come down to the cemetery and give just one hour of their time. “It’s a huge job that is very difficult to do alone,” Ms Tucker said. “I will provide detailed maps and instructions for placing these crosses, helpers need only meet at the cemetery flag at 9 a.m. on Sunday. “The more people, the faster the job will be done.” READ NEXT Flower donations are urgently needed for April 8, when students from all schools will be invited to come and lay a flower at the grave of a former military member. “It becomes a beautiful thing to see every year,” said Ms. Tucker’s graves marked went without a place of flowers there by the students last time.” If you would like to help with crosses or flowers, please contact Marg Tucker on 0402 610 603.
